Australia's new cyber security strategy: a critical outlook

Cyber intelligence Cyber security Cyberspace National security Strategic planning Australia

This article is an opinion piece published by The Interpereter - Lowy Institute for International Policy. It was written shortly after the Australia's new cyber security policy was released in April 2016. The piece discusses the disadvantage of having the strategy's deliverables portioned into six distinct portfolios. It also looks at the lack of an international outlook that the policy seems to take when compared to Europe, for example. Finally, the article talks to the relatively low set budget against a rather ambitious agenda, including educational goals. Nevertheless, it concludes that it is overall a well researched and written document, certainly a step forward in strenghtening Australia's cyber security.
